Demi Guynes Kutcher, professionally known as Demi Moore (born November 11, 1962) is an American actress.

After minor roles in film, and a role in the television drama series, General Hospital, Moore established her career in films such as St. Elmo's Fire (1985) and Ghost (1990), and in the early 1990s became one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood following her successes in A Few Good Men (1992), Indecent Proposal (1993) and Disclosure (1994). By the end of the decade her films were less successful, but she returned to prominence with her role in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003).

Moore took her professional name from her first husband, Freddy Moore, and is the mother of three daughters from her marriage to Bruce Willis. She has been married to actor Ashton Kutcher since 2005 and later took his last name in 2009.

Early life

Moore was born Demetria Gene Guynes in Roswell, New Mexicomarker; she was named Demetria after a beauty product her mother saw in a magazine. As a child she had a difficult and unstable home life. Her biological father, Charles Harmon, left her mother, Virginia King (November 27, 1943 – July 2, 1998), after a two-month marriage, before Moore was born. As a result, Moore had the surname of her stepfather, Danny Guynes (March 9 1943 – October 1980), on her birth certificate. Danny Guynes, who committed suicide in 1980, frequently changed jobs; as a result the family moved a total of forty times, once living in a small town called Rogers Manor, Pennsylvania. Moore's parents were alcoholics and often fought and beat each other. Moore was cross-eyed as a child, and wore an eye patch in an attempt to correct the problem until it was eventually corrected by two surgeries. She also suffered from kidney dysfunction. Demi Moore has heterochromia; she has one green eye, and the other hazel.

Moore's family settled in Los Angelesmarker in 1976. Moore attended Fairfax High School in Hollywoodmarker, where her schoolmates included Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis and bassist Michael Balzary and actor Timothy Hutton. When Moore was sixteen, her friend, actress Nastassja Kinski, persuaded her to drop out of school to become an actress. Moore has two younger half-brothers: James Craig Harmon (paternal) and Morgan Guynes (maternal, born 1967). Moore is a former Scientologist.

Career

Demi Moore's film debut was in the 1982 3-D science fiction/horror film, Parasite, which was a hit on the drive-in circuit, ultimately grossing $7 million. However, Moore was not widely known until she played the part of Jackie Templeton on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital, from 1982-1983. Moore also had an uncredited cameo at the end of the 1982 spoof Young Doctors in Love.

In the mid-1980s, Moore appeared in the youth-oriented films St. Elmo's Fire and About Last Night, and she was often listed as one of the Brat Pack, a name the media dubbed a certain group of top young actors at the time. In 1988 Demi starred in The Seventh Sign directed by Carl Schultz. After the commercial success of Ghost, Moore was given more prominent roles in A Few Good Men, Indecent Proposal, Disclosure and The Hunchback of Notre Dame for which she was the first actress to reach the $10 million salary mark. During the early 1990s, she was the highest paid actress in Hollywood. She never duplicated the success of Ghost and had a string of less successful films like The Scarlet Letter, The Juror, Striptease, and G.I. Jane. Meanwhile, Moore's Passion of Mind co-star Joss Ackland lambasted Moore by describing her as being "not very bright or talented". although he worked with her again on Flawless in 2008. At the same time she produced and starred in a TV mini-series called If These Walls Could Talk, written by Nancy Savoca. A three-part series on abortion, Savoca directed two segments, including the one in which Moore played a single woman in the 1950s seeking a back-alley abortion. She was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress for that role.

Moore was a founding "celebrity investor" in the Planet Hollywood chain of international theme restaurants (modeled after the Hard Rock Cafe and launched in New York on October 22, 1991) along with Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and then-husband Bruce Willis.

After a break from her acting career, Moore returned to the screen as a former member of Charlie's Angels gone bad in the 2003 film Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. In 2006, she appeared in Bobby which featured an all-star cast including her husband Ashton Kutcher although they did not appear in any scenes together. She later starred in the thriller film Mr. Brooks, which was released on June 1, 2007. She appeared in Jon Bon Jovi's longform video "Destination Anywhere" as Janie.

In 2006, Moore became the new face for the Helena Rubinstein brand of cosmetics.

Vanity Fair controversy

In August 1991, Moore appeared nude on the cover of Vanity Fair under the title More Demi Moore. Annie Leibovitz shot the picture while Moore was seven months pregnant with her daughter Scout LaRue, intending to portray "anti-Hollywood, anti-glitz" attitude. The cover sparked an intense controversy for Vanity Fair and Demi Moore. It was widely discussed on television, radio, and in newspaper articles. The frankness of Leibovitz' portrayal of a pregnant sex symbol led to divided opinions, ranging from complaints of sexual objectification to celebrations of the photograph as a symbol of empowerment.

The photograph was subject to numerous parodies, including the Spy magazine version, which placed Moore's then husband Bruce Willis' head on her body. In Leibovitz v. Paramount Pictures Corp., Leibovitz sued over one parody featuring Leslie Nielsen, made to promote the 1994 film Naked Gun 33⅓: The Final Insult. In the parody, the model's body was attached to what is described as "the guilty and smirking face" of Mr. Nielsen. The teaser said "Due this March". The case was dismissed in 1996 because the parody relied "for its comic effect on the contrast between the original". In November 2009, Moroccan magazine Femmes du Maroc emulated the infamous pose with Moroccan news reporter Nadia Larguet, causing controversy in the majority Muslim nation. In August 1992, Moore would again appear nude on the cover of Vanity Fair, modeling for the world's leading body painting artist, Joanne Gair in Demi's Birthday Suit. The painting is considered by many to be the best-known example of modern body painting artwork.

Personal life

Kutcher and Moore, September 2008
Moore married singer Freddy Moore in 1979 and they divorced in 1985. In 1987, Moore met Moonlighting star Bruce Willis, and the couple married two months later. The star couple had three daughters together: Rumer Glenn Willis (b. 16 August 1988), Scout LaRue Willis (b. 20 July 1991), and Tallulah Belle Willis (b. 3 February 1994). Demi and Bruce separated in 1998 and were divorced in 2000, but remain friends to this day. In 2003, Moore began dating actor Ashton Kutcher. Demi married Ashton in 2005.

Moore's primary residence is in Hailey, Idahomarker, near the famous Sun Valleymarker resort, although she spends much time in the Los Angelesmarker area with Kutcher. She also owns a waterfront mansion on Sebago Lakemarker, Mainemarker. She is a practicing follower of the Philip Berg's Kabbalah Centre religion, and initiated Kutcher into the faith, having said that she "didn’t grow up Jewish, but... would say that [she has] been more exposed to the deeper meanings of particular rituals than any of [her] friends that did". Contrary to popular belief, Moore claims she has never been a raw foodist and dispelled the vegan rumors by eating a hamburger in a recent Mario Testino photoshoot.

Moore legally changed her last name to Kutcher two years after marrying husband Ashton Kutcher. However, she continues to use Moore in her professional life and her acting roles.

According to the New York Times, Moore is "the world's most high-profile doll collector", and among her favorites is the Gene Marshall fashion doll.
